Very funny place with a wide range of burger and “bait” choices. Lots of entertaining decor. Good service. Pabst Blue Ribbon. Burgers were a bit salty. Good onion rings and chips.

Alright... it's a dive and a grease pit but oh my, they have GREAT burgers! You can get lost looking through their pages of different types of burgers. You can't go wrong with any of them.

Love the cheese blobs and fries. My wife likes the mini moo burger or salsa. We visit as a couple monthly, I visit weekly.

When I found Burger Barge listed as the #1 "cheap eats" option, I was very excited to try it. I didn't know it was going to be located off the beaten path, kind of hidden in the bushes. It's small, with not much parking. Upon...More

We go here whenever we're in Peoria. It's a river-side pub type place, for good food, cold beer, and a spectacular view. Let me start by saying that this is not the cleanest restaurant around. In fact, expect some bugs stuck in webs in the...More
